Outright Games and developer Coatsink have released Transformers: Battlegrounds, a tactical strategy game set in the Transformers universe. It’s available on PC (Steam), PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One, for $39.99.

In Transformers: Battleground you’ll take a squad of Autobots such as Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, and Grimlock, and engage in a series of turn-based tactical battles against the Decepticons. The robots in disguise will battle across Earth and Cyberton in the single player mission mode.

Arcade mode includes head to head matches where players can play as either side to capture flags, defend energon deposits, or survive as the last bot standing. Arcade mode also supports local multiplayer.

“The Transformers franchise has spanned many different forms of entertainment over the years and we’re always excited by a new video game featuring everyone’s favorite bots,” says Mark Blecher, Hasbro SVP Corporate Strategy and Business Affairs. “It’s an incredibly exciting time for the video game industry and we couldn’t be more pleased to launch this new title for fans of all ages to enjoy.”

Transformers: Battlegrounds is available in standard and digital deluxe editions. The deluxe edition includes bonus character cosmetics.

Transformers: Battlegrounds is rated E10+.
